Samuel Barker Houston, Texas
After spending years on the road playing shows with the mere hope of recouping travel costs, the title of the album, All This For Gas Money?, was natural. It's not a slight against the life, but a playful joke for those who live it. It's a testament to keeping your head up after averaging 149 miles per show for an average payout of $36 for 2010. You covered the cost to get there, so keep going!
